Slow Cooker Barbecue Beef Recipe

Publisher Photo
This juicy shredded beef is so popular at summer gatherings. The tender meat is slow-cooked in a savory sauce that includes tomato paste, brown sugar, molasses and chili powder. It makes a big batch...enough for seconds! -Colleen Nelson, Mandan, North Dakota

MY REVIEW

"The beef came out SO tender!! My husband doesn't like spicy foods and we are not big onion fans so I cut the chili powder down to 1 tablespoon and only used half the onion. It was just enough spice and flavor. I think next time I make this I am going to add some more brown sugar...I'm a sweet bbq fan. Definitely a good recipe."

"This recipe is a real winner. We have made it several times for Labor Day BBQ and for informal get-togethers. It allows us to have a low-fuss but home cooked meal and guests always rave!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 10, 2011

"I lost my recipe that I got from a friend almost identical to this one, and when I saw this one I knew my search was over. All of my family loved this recipe, and I have 3 up and coming cooks to share with."
